Well this is not a still life but it goes along with the theme! Aarghhhh. ;) :D

I didn't have any good references around here to go with the theme, so I just did it from my head.

... dealing with Jack always leads to pirates, galleon and sea! :D
Maybe You should have made a wooden leg and a hook as still life, Bisky!!! LOL

Dear Jack, wonder if you had a chance to check out 'Lozeta's" entry into Monsters Corner,,,a sweetyfaced pirate? you will love it!

Jack, I could get into this better if you sent me the money to travel to Jamaica to find reference material with regard to the bottle of rum. :D

Caesar is right you know I always seem to end up with the sea ,somewhere in there ...I will pop this one in to see if it gets anyones imagination going....its very quick and very blurred...I did the original on the smallest common size ,and added the old canvas texture in PhotoFiltre....The picture was completely drawn in Artrage...Jack.

Heres another quick one, not much detail in the coins, I used part of an old castles painting for the background,from one I did way back... seemed to fit the picture ...if you drink rum out of large glasses, you could start seeing dragons an all sorts of things.....Jack.

You'll get wet sitting on this chest... Yes done in ArtRage but the bits chopped and tweaked in Paint Shop Pro.

Heikki, MoHei.

Your still life paintings are never still, but definitely filled with life.

Good stuff. :):):)

Cool. I feel so fishy, in a Finding Nemo way. . . hahah. Very photo leaning. No question what we're looking at.
